Work has been demanding and demoralizing. And that’s why there was no blog on Friday.
Sixty Miles Strong!
On Saturday morning I awoke, thankfully without the need for an alarm that I forgot to set, and drove down to Senoia for the Wilson 100. I surprised myself, riding sixty miles in just over three hours and thirty minutes. For professional riders this is slow, for overweight, aged men such as myself this is fantastic. I should’ve thanked the beautiful woman who passed me within the last five miles for providing inspiration, but even I thought that would be a creepy gesture.
After a ride and a beer I headed to the Moreland Ranchero and commenced to help Steven and Debbie erect a portion of the framing for their new stable.
Upon returning ITP I rewarded myself with a shower and a Chinese buffet dinner. A strange thing happened while eating dinner, some man wearing a long white “lab” coat and carrying a book walked around and asked single diners, myself included, if he could share the table. My good karma and sense of adventure had been used up by that time and I politely declined.
Sunday, Yard Work Sunday
Yesterday I got out of the house to do yard work. Two and a half hours of mowing and trimming bushes made me wish that I had signed up for back-to-back sixty mile rides instead. Though I didn’t finish all of my yard work, I did quit in time to shower and lay my lazy ass on the floor to watch the Packers v. Bears game.
After the game and after taking a thirty-minute power nap I headed out to DBA Barbecue for dinner before then joining the festivities for Dave’s and Katherine’s (Public Enema and Saddle Sores) 25th Anniversary party at George’s Bar. It was great to see a good many hashers that I don’t see often any longer.
Surprisingly I’ve Yet To Order My iPhone 6s
